The Fete Musicians were invited to serenade the crowd that evening. With their strings rendition of classics like Viva la Vida and pop songs, like Just Give Me a Reason and Accidentally in Love, it was an enjoyable night filled with great music and sumptuous food. A gathering of all the established professionals in the industry, the event also serves as a good base for the industry contacts to network while paying tribute to the high-achievers.
